Change a chart from one type to another

You can change a chart from one type to another—for example, from a column chart to a bar chart, or from a 2D chart to a 3D chart.

Change a chart’s type

  1. Select the chart.

  2. Click the Chart tab at the top of the sidebar on the right.

    If you don’t see a sidebar, or the sidebar doesn’t have a Chart tab, click Format button in the toolbar.

  3. Click the Chart Type pop-up menu at the bottom of the sidebar, then choose an option.

If you can’t edit a chart, it may be locked. Unlock it to make changes.
